My stay at the Lansdowne Guest House was incredible. Greeted by the lovely Lily on check in, who was ready to do anything to make my stay the best it could be, she took me to my room which was gorgeous. The room was so cozy and great for my weekend away. The breakfast was amazing, run by Lily who was dressed beautifully, however the hotel manager was wearing jeans and a see through top which wasn’t something I wasn’t expecting to see during my stay at somewhere I considered quite fancy. Overall though I had a fantastic stay and would definitely visit again in the future.

Thank you to all at the landsdowne, we enjoyed 2 nights at this amazing b&b this weekend and can not fault it! We were greeted by a lovely lady who was warm, welcoming & even helped with our luggage. The Covid precautions were well met and sanitiser available through out. We were shown to our room which was immaculate, modern, welcoming and very cosy. We both slept very well, and enjoyed breakfast. Lots to choose from, cooked to perfection and attention to detail was fab! Located just 5 mins walk to the main point in bourton, a lovely stroll to take in the sights. This is my 3rd visit to the town and I would now not stay any where else. Highly recommend :) x

Loved our stay at The Lansdowne Guest House and would highly recommend. Perfect location with convenient on site parking. Lovely spacious room, beautifully furnished and well equipped, spotlessly clean. The staff are friendly, attentive and helpful. Loved the breakfasts. Good choice on offer with quality ingredients. Well done to all who made this a perfect stay for us. Would definitely choose The Lansdowne Guest House when I return to the Cotswolds.

We stayed for one night in a double room overlooking the street. The room very small, with efficient use of the space they did have. A fan was provided to help cool the room. The bed was hard (uncomfortable for me, my husband was OK). None of the other guests, nor the hosts wore masks in the public areas (not sure if that was still required, but we certainly were). Breakfast was tasty. However, the breakfast rooms (there were 2) were small and when we were eating, all the tables were fully filled in one of the rooms (I estimate about 7). They were tightly packed together and the guests weren't spread across the two rooms. We were not comfortable with the distancing and lack of masks on the wait staff and other guests, so we ate and left quickly. The hosts were welcoming, friendly, and helpful. The location is great, just a short walk into the town centre.

Dear Karen Thank you for taking the time to leave us some feedback. We are still staggering our breakfast times to try and maximise social distancing but of course if guests are sat at their table for longer or if someone misses their slot, inevitably the room gets full quickly. It is no longer mandatory to wear masks however our staff are always happy to wear masks and gloves at a guest request

We have just spent two nights here in room 10. The location is good - just a few minutes into the lovely village, there is car parking and the room was very nicely decorated, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. It was very warm but a fan had already been placed in the room which was really welcome. It was nice to be shown to our room and given a specific time to go to breakfast in the morning. The breakfast itself was good - the full english was hot and tasty - definitely quality produce is being used here. We stayed here on our way back home after a trip to Bournemouth and this place was much nicer than our Bournemouth hotel.....good value and really good
